Cinco de Mayo Game Board. This is a fun and engaging game board about Cinco de Mayo. The focus is on earning Cinco de Mayo Points. Points can be earned in a number of different ways:
★Start of Game- Each player begins the game with 100 points.
★Spelling “Cinco de Mayo”- Points are earned when a player spells “Cinco de Mayo”. Throughout the game, there are many ways to obtain letters. Players should keep track of the letters on their point sheets.
★Extra Letters- Any extra letters that a player has collected but cannot spell “Cinco de Mayo” are worth five points at the end of the game.
★Landing on “Sombrero” symbol- When a player lands on this symbol, he/she will earn 25 points.
★Landing on “Tortilla Chips” symbol- When a player lands on this symbol, he/she can “steal” 25 points from another player.
★Landing on “Salsa” symbol- When a player lands on this symbol, he/she can choose any two letters to help spell “Cinco de Mayo”.
★“Pick Card”- When a player lands on a “Pick Card”, another player will need to read the question. The player can earn points or letters if the answer is correct.
★Finishing Game- The first player to finish the game will earn 75 Cinco de Mayo points, second place will earn 50 points, third place will earn 25 points, and any player after that will earn 10 points.

Teacher Note: Printing the game board off in color and on heavier paper works best- but regular paper will work too. Each group will also need one die and some game tokens. In addition, you may want to go over the history and provide some facts to your students about Cinco de Mayo before the activity.
